    today test the water and for the 3rd time change the waterfall .Geeze no wonder they say women can't make up there minds .If I can get ph up to 8 then fish will go back in .I wish the weather people could figure out what part of this next storm is going to hit us .Have to do another water exchange between stock tanks and pond

    well did not put rocks on waterfall .I tested water and decided fish could go back in .Water is still cloudy and have to buy more quilt bating .But to risky to keep aggie and bert in that tank any longer they were starting to get frisky so safer they do that in the pond

    I think they will once the water clears up .Still have to add more water .But I did notice my 2 lotus tubers had stems over 6 inches long .They were in the stock tanks and I had no clue they were even growing

    Well added up my total cost so far and that is with the 60 dollars i spent on another stock tank and so far I am at 599 dollars spent .I did not include the block I bought yet .I have to figure that out because I had 2 -25 dollar off coupons from lowes and bought stuff for the house also .Liner being most expensive part .But with new pumps working my electric bill was only 118.86 and that's with running my well to keep the leaking pond full plus it helped with the rain and melting snow .Taxes for electric company were just under 20 dollars for last month .

    Sissy- I'm jealous- I started a tray of creeping thyme yesterday and nothing yet. Do you have your trays heated?

    Nope actually those trays are from those mini hot dogs wrapped in dough in the freezer section (hebrew national one )and they are just sitting in my front living room window .I have a spray bottle of water .i was going to wrap them in plastic wrap but never got the chance too .I guess the dollar store seeds really sprout .I know I was shocked .I did not expect much
